Morehead State University has selected Amazon Business as a supplier of unplanned business purchases (office supplies should still be purchased with the contracted university supplier, Staples). Amazon Business for Education is a new marketplace on that offers access to hundreds of millions of products in a shopping experience tailored for business shoppers. Amazon Business’s functionality increases purchasing visibility, enabling better use of budgeted monies allocated for items purchased on In addition, account configuration options and purchase controls help reduce risk, ensuring spend on Amazon Business aligns with existing purchasing processes and policies.


It’s everything we love about Amazon plus additional features designed to streamline our purchasing process:


  • Free Two-Day Shipping on qualifying orders consisting of Amazon - fulfilled items over $49.
  • Business pricing and quantity discounts on select items.
  • Tax exempt purchasing for qualified items.
  • Business-optimized search and browse functionality.
  • Enhanced reporting and reconciliation.
  • Dedicated business customer service.


If you wish to purchase from Amazon with your University purchasing card, please email Sara Leach at to receive an emailed invitation directly from the University’s Amazon Business account, inviting you to join our account as an authorized buyer. At this time Amazon does not accept purchase orders. Please review the information below for simple and easy directions. Invitations expire after seven business days.


  • If you do not have an existing Amazon account associated with your work email address: You will be walked through creating a new account for business after accepting your business invitation. This will take approximately 30 seconds.


  • If you already have an Amazon Account associated with your work email address and wish to convert it: As stated above, everyone authorized to purchase on Amazon Business on behalf of the University will need their own business user account, with their own account credentials. If you already have an account tied to your work email that you have used for business purposes, you can convert your existing account into a business user account. When directed to the account ‘Sign In’ page, input your existing Amazon account credentials. This will ensure current account information, including order history, addresses, payment methods, etc. migrate as you transition from a consumer account to business user account. This will take approximately 30-60 Seconds.


If you already have an Amazon Account associated with your work email address and you do not wish to convert it to our centralized business account: This should only apply if you have made personal purchases on an Amazon account that is associated with your work email, Amazon recommends creating a new account for business use (rather than converting an existing Amazon account) to protect the privacy of your account information and separate business vs. personal purchases. If your work email is tied to your existing Amazon consumer account, follow the prompts to first associate a new, personal email address with your pre-existing consumer account and disassociate your work email with that account.  Then you can create a new account for business use and associate your work email with your new business user account. This will take approximately 2-3 minutes.
